Hurricane Harvey sparked a gasoline panic across the Dallas area last week with motorists reenacting President Richard Nixon-and President Jimmy Carter-era gas lines at area stations. In some cases, exchanges between customers got heated, including at the 7-Eleven at Preston Road and Forest Lane. Police were reportedly called to the scene after an afternoon incident Aug. 31, though a report on a confrontation between customers didn’t show up in a search of police reports this week. Video of one customers dumping gasoline into another customer’s car went viral.
